4th show added for Brazil
« on: July 24, 2017, 05:51:24 PM »
If the band grosses less per show in South America (compared to North America/Europe, because of currency conversion), then major kudos to them for adding the 4th Brazil show "for the sake of the diehard fans".

Either that, or they're recording the concert DVD in Brazil  ;D

I hope not... it's a North American album.

If they're savvy, they'll want some crowd footage from the Brazillian shows. Edit out the non-English signs. Paste enthusiastic crowd into the actual city's DVD.

It could be down to filming, or just that Brazil, with fanatical fans, has been missed out since 360 and the band have wanted to make it up.

But I've just been reading about birth traditions in Brazil (in an attempt to see if there is any other reasoning as to why Brazil gets 4 nights).
And guess what I found, now that there is a half-Brazilian new arrival in the camp -
In Brazil it's customary for all the relatives to come round and for the parents to receive visitors and then to give presents out.
Well there's 4 nights for 'visitors' to come along and 4 performances in return.  That's one big party to celebrate, who says being a U2 fan isn't like an extended family?

Historically they have grossed slightly MORE in latin America per show than in the US, but that's because the stadiums are larger. Their 10 shows on U2360 in Latin america had 80,000 people each and grossed $8M per show. The average for 360 was $6.7M

They are getting here because there is demand for such. Brazil is a huge country with a relevant amount of loyal U2 fans as the rest of South America.

One amendment: no fanatics here, we only celebrate cheerfully and welcome in our warm-hearted style the ones that are relevant and empathic with our friendly way. Not a rule, we don't do that to everyone, but these Irish certainly have got their spot here.

They really should take the tour to Australia. They have a whole month before December, when SOE is expected. I doubt they will do any promo work prior to the album release.

When I posted the "infinite dates added to tour" thread, I thought that I was joking.

They knew they would have a problem with getting two shows at Cooke Park. They should have tried for Slane or somewhere else to hold a huge audience.

All I read are complaints about one show!
